Here I am, a man, yet what a surprise,
To realize I have given birth many times,
Except that my pregnancies have lasted
Nine years instead of months!
Life impregnated me maybe on day one!
Nine years later I had the labor pains
Of not quite living up to people's expectations,
But I gave birth to myself as someone
Unique - even very lovable to some!
Nine more years later I screamed in the agony
Of not living up to my expectations
Of being a genius, but gave birth to myself
Again, as a junior philosopher and poet.
Really! Hey, I didn't say Socrates and Byron!
Should I go on? You get the idea!
Mr. Budding Eccentric, getting smacked on
The butt for not measuring up, but surprise!
Putting out something good after all,
Or at least I think so. The tensions build up
In the old set up, until nine years later -
KABOOM! out comes the new stuff!
You too can sort of give birth, dude!
Just get in touch with your anima.
It helps to have a midwife like Socrates
Asking just the right questions.
Author's Notes: Socrates called himself a philosophical midwife, helping students to give birth to ideas by asking questions.
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
